New York state reinstates restrictions for nursing home visitations

Oct 30, 2020
The Bottom Line

Despite CMS recommendations to reopen nursing homes to visitors, New York state has taken a step back and reinstated restrictions to nursing homes and SNFs located in COVID-19 hotspots.

In a four week period ending October 11, New York nursing homes reported 713 confirmed and suspected COVID-19 cases, which is more than twice the number of cases reported in the four week period prior.

As an exception to the rule, compassionate care visits, necessary legal visits, and essential companion visits for individuals with cognitive impairments will be allowed.
